Ex-pointer Seacon Beg was third on his debut under Rules at Towcester but will do better over hurdles. Princess Tara has to be a danger to all as she was only beaten seven lengths in a Listed event at Aintree last time but big things will be expected of The Queen's SPECIAL AGENT. He's a half-brother to useful Flat and hurdles winner Aladdins Cave and will be ready for this. He has more speed in his pedigree than fellow newcomers The Geegeez Geegee, All Force Majeure and Starchaser.
